    Cool If you could realistically have any tank in your current home, what would you have?

    I've been browsing tanks (I do this all the time...thinking about what sort of tank I'd realistically like to aim for at some point in the future) and found this:
    http://fishkeeper.co.uk/site/product...cabinet-vxa027

    Check out the wine rack

    I'd set this up as a heavily planted tank with my current stock - plus a few large schools of fish like rummynose tetra and neons.

    I can dream can't I?

    While that's a cool tank and all I wouldn't want drunk ppl near my tank during wine parties lol

    My house is fairly small and limited room at the moment, currently if budget (aka girlfriend) allowed I would revamp my 55 stock a little, and add a large bowfront corner tank or replace my 55 with a 175/155 bowfront tank

    Haha...I wouldn't have wine parties - it'd be stocked with fine wines just for us.

    I'm also eyeing up a 200 litre cube that I would keep tiger barbs in.

    I don't have a picture of my tank, but I am currently working on getting a custom build that is 96x30x30 which works out to 374 gallons for jack dempsey's, vieja argentea, and some sort of severum. I can't decide which sev I like best.
    Here is a picture of the stand my dad made for my 65g and I will want something similar for the new tank. That ugly 29g next to the empty tank is getting a re-scape as soon as I have the time.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    That is a nice stand and matching canopy.

    One day I will get my 10 foot custom built tank for some large marine angels

    I'm looking forward to seeing some pics of set-up, and Mommy's as well

    That tank is not ugly Mommy1! Give yourself some credit!

    Personally I would have multiple racks of tanks upon tanks wall to wall for all the different types of species only or strain only discus tanks with a large 500 gal show tank arround an amazonian theme with about 1000 cardinals 500 lemon tetras and 20 discus.

    All these would be on an automated water changer with a hidden water storage system that auto ages my water and heats to 82F.
    FW: 1 45gal, 1 40gal, 3 10gal, 3 30gal all community tanks of different species
    Sw: 1 55gal, 1 30gal show, 1 29gal show, 1 20gal and 2 10's

    I used to want a 120, then a 180, now I want a 10' X 3' X 2' (~450 gallons) FOWLR with a few larger marine angles and lionfish. Someday when I live in a house big enough for a tank like that on the main floor, I will get a tank like that

    That would be nuts. I have given up on the fish room idea... too complicated. I am still thinking large bowfront show tank. My 55 would be a predator tank, then probably just a 8' rack with about 10 tanks.

    2ea Planted 40 gallon breeders with Rams and some dither fish
    3ea Planted 20 Long with a few different set ups - not sure yet but would want interesting stocks
    4ea 10g - 1 shrimp tank, 2 Fry tanks, 1 QT Tank

    Rack would be 8' Long, 18" deep, and probably have the top of the 10 gallon tanks around 6' from floor level. 8 strip lights, the 40 gallons would have there own filters, while the small tanks probably would just be sponge fed.

    I would love a 10 foot long tank that was only 2 feet deep for my clown loaches when they get bigger. They are going to have to settle for the 8 foot tank in the 300-350 gallon range we are saving for now.

    The reason I dont want a super deep tank is that fact I want to be able to reach the bottom without taking a swim.
